62. Interesting thing about "approval"...
If I'm asked by a pollster, I'll "strongly approve" of Pres. Obama.

If asked by friends, I'll say I am disappointed and pissed.

I'll bet a lot of Dems and Progressives are in the same boat.

I don't want to disapprove of Pres. Obama in public and have that disapproval lumped in with the rightwingnut critics, so I approve.

I will, of course, vote a straight Dem ticket - as I always have - and I will vote for Pres. Obama in 2012, but my enthusiasm and my contributions will not be there.

(Incidentally, I just sent a (for me) fat donation to my Rep. Jay Inslee. I've seen him in action. Nice large set of balls... he voted no on the tax sell-out. That's the kind of donations I'll be making.)
